any advise on changing out a leaking fuel pump

The fuel pump behind the fuel filter housing is leaking. I just don't want air or any other mistakes. I would like to change it and drive off happy for a change.

that doesnt tell me much...cause every modle truck was available in a cali or federal emmission....

assuming its federal emmission...

take the fuel canister out.....it involves two thirteen mill bolts and a bunch of quarter inch hose clamps......and two fuel lines that screw into the front of the fuel filter housing...

to get the big banjo bolt out....use a flex head wratchet and a 1 and 1/4 socket....

two ten MM bolts hold the fuel pump in......


here are my warnings.....

first off...replace all of the fuel lines with ford fuel lines...or they will leak...

make sure to pry the fuel pump out VERY carefully and pry it STRAIT up...if the plunger for the fuel pump drops into the motor (it will only happen if it catches on the block) then it requires motor dissasembly..

its a self purging system.....it may start hard...and run rough at first...but just drive it...

as far as the housing...yes...it has to come out again. If you replaced any lines then....then those lines dont need to be replaced but any other lines that werent replaced shoudl be...

no priming needed..just crank the motor and let it fire on its own...ive never primed or purged one....
